When I first ordered this sweater, I didn't have any idea what I'd do with it. Simply fell in love with the cotton candy color scheme and called it a day! I'm a hardcore sucker for gradient fabrics... especially when they're pastel. Pretty much every characteristic this garment possessed (including the fact that it's a motherhonkin' sweater dress) coalesced into a fluid manifestation of wearable divinity that I can only describe as "God clothing." I tweeted about this phenomenon once, but I think you all thought I was kidding. That heavenly essence is REAL! And it just so happens to photograph extremely well. I held the sweater up to nearly everything in my closet, trying to find some decent layers to pile over and under it. Can you believe it? It's like my paisley blouse and knit cardigan were separated from this baby at birth. I went full force with the 60's theme, and instead of embracing Woodstock culture, I drew inspiration from icons like Twiggy, Edie, and... yes, Dianna Agron on the January 2012 cover of Nylon.

My sweater is from Nautral-Colour, just like the last little striped number I blogged about in December. Some day my sweater collection will be as impressive as the blazer section in my closet. Too bad I live in the desert where sweaters RARELY come in handy. This one's especially practical because it's dress-length. Which means I can wear it sans pants, hallelujah! Functionality aside, the best darn thing about it is the gradient blue-to-pink color fade. Would you guys feel pissed if I repeated that five more times? Gradient blue-to-pink color fade. Gradient blue-to-pink color fade. Gradient blue-to-pink color fade. Gradient blue-to-pink color fade. Gradient blue-to-pink color fade. My autobiography: Gradient blue-to-pink color fade by Bebe Zeva, a Story About Life, Love, And Spirituality (because these threads make feel a teensy bit religious, y'all!) God clothing. It's a thing.
